Joe Budden's 2018 Recap Has The Internet Floored...

Whew, the growth!

Published December 31, 2018

This time last year, Joe Budden had just welcomed a baby boy with his then-girlfriend, Cyn Santana, and had a public fallout with Complex and Everyday Struggle. Citing his absence was due to “internal chaos,” instead of the paternity leave they claimed, the former Slaughterhouse rapper ended 2017 as a retired rapper with a thriving podcast. 

Over the course of 2018, Joe was dubbed "the Howard Stern of hip-hop." Within a week, his eponymous podcast landed an exclusive deal with Spotify and alongside Revolt, his show, State of the Culturewas born. Unofficially, he and Cyn became relationship goals. 

  1. Right before Christmas, all love was found when Joe proposed.

    During a live show for his podcast, he took a leap of faith (again) and Cyn agreed to become Mrs. Budden. It's no secret that this, arguably, could've been the best year of Joe's life.

  2. Fans couldn't agree more and have loved witnessing his evolution
  3. Look at God!

    Congrats on a great year, and keep leveling up, Joe!
